the primaries. but in every single swing state, the obama campaign has two, three times the number of offices in the states to deploy volunteers that romney has. but a very underreported and underappreciated phenomenon that's going on in these battleground states is that the obama campaign also has air superiority. we so often look at what's being spent. but if you're sitting in your living room, if you're a swing voter, what's being spent doesn't really matter to you. it's what you're seeing. and c-mac calculated that in the last week in these battleground states, the obama campaign had more than twice as many spots on the air as the romney campaign did. so for every obama campaign ad that you see in ohio or virginia, you're going to see half as many romney ads. 17,000 romney ads to 36,000 obama ads. even if you count in all the outside groups that are spending, there were still 15,000 more ads with the democratic message. another thing we calculated, positive/negative. mitt romney ads, 99% negative in these battleground states. the 1%, there were a couple spanish language ads, and there was
